Michigan couple visiting fish fry a regular at Cochran bluegrass park.

Cochran Masonic Lodge 217 held a fish fry to raise funds for the charities they support.  Many ate inside, some came to pick up their plates.  One couple who was seated at a table had come from Grand Blanc, Michigan.  Doug and Darleine Liley were in town for the bluegrass festival that will be held at Hillside RV Park.  Former park manager Jean Holland, who was with the couple, said they'd began visiting 20 years ago, and "became family."
